Overview

Crockett House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + pull out couch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Best described as your very own State Park. The hills, live creek, forest and lake make Creekside a great spot. Add two large decks 14'x24' and 14'x12' with lighted walkways and it's a perfect place to unwind both day and night. Walk the trails, sit on the many benches and cross the bridges to the dam and small waterfall.

Take the short ride to the community boat launch, park and playground to enjoy swimming or boating in Texas' best kept secret. The spring fed lake is always cool and refreshing. The wildlife and birding are a favorite with all our guest.

Return home to hang on the hammock or enjoy a game of horseshoes. When your ready to wrap it up for the day enjoy watching an evening of movies on Netflix instant streaming or the blu ray dvd player. The home is tastefully decorated and is modern and comfortable.

The Setting: Creekside sets on nearly 10 acres of land. The land is a very interesting piece with many interesting features. There are areas where springs run from the hillside and have washed away soil exposing tree roots. You will enjoy sitting on a bench looking at thousands of ferns, in the area our Niece aptly named 'Fern Gully'. See the conjoined trees, cactus, Holly Grove, hills, huge trees and beautiful dogwoods.

The bridge crosses the creek, set a while and enjoy watching the minnows dart around nibbling on whatever food washes their way. Benches dot the property and offer a variety of settings for you to enjoy.

I have yet to see bugs that became a problem.

The Inside: When you walk up to the front porch the first thing you notice are the hanging plants and the cafe table and chairs. Open the front door and you will be amazed at the flow of the home. This home, as are all of our homes, were built by us and it shows. The tile and laminate floor, Granite counters, tiled tub/showers and small touches lead to a comfortable stay.

The Living Room, Breakfast room and kitchen are all open and connected allowing your group to communicate and enjoy each other regardless of which room they are in. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable, guest seem to compliment on the comfort of the beds.

The Decks & Trails: Yes I like building decks! The rear deck is a 14'x24' deck about 3-4' off the ground. Aside from your standard outside light it also has subdued rail lighting that offers a nice light that doesn't blind you.

When you walk off the main deck you will see a lighted pathway that takes you approx. 50 yards to a 12'x14' deck at the side of a hill. This deck overlooks a fern grove that is just beautiful. This deck (as does the upper) has an electrical outlet as well as rail lighting.

Adjacent to the deck is a hammock. Near the upper deck is the horseshoes with to areas to place beverages while throwing the shoes.

We are constantly working on improving the property and adding trails. The underbrush has been cleared and the trees trimmed to provide a shade canopy that is absolutely stunning. We have some trails and will be adding more when the weather allows us to burn again....and cools a little.

As is the case with all our properties we expect great and positive reviews.

About Mark And Brenda Copus

Brenda and I were attracted to East Texas because of its natural beauty. The rolling hills, creeks and heavily forested areas reminded us of our native New England.

When we first visited Houston County Lake we were hooked. We left the hustle and bustle of Spring (Houston) and settled for the small town charm and the prospects of building a Vacation Rental Business.

We built our first home (The Gregory) in 2007. Of course my business had been a life time of owning my own construction/ remodeling company in Houston. We labored on all our homes and were able to build them for much less than market pricing. This gave us the opportunity to rent well built, clean and maintained homes for much less than most any others could.

The Gregory was followed by Awesome View and eventually Creekside. All our homes are used solely for Vacation Rentals.

I was originally born in England and was young when my folks emigrated to Canada and eventually the U.S. with 4 kids in tow. You may notice the English connection with my love of gardening, something I credit my late Mother for instilling in me.

We work hard to provide a clean, comfortable and quality home at an affordable price, we think we do quite well at providing just that! We look forward to providing the same for you, your family and friends.

As always, help is a phone call away.

Mark And Brenda Copus purchased this house in 2011

Why Mark And Brenda Copus chose Crockett

As mentioned, our love of the area stemmed from its natural beauty and the fantastic spring fed lake Crockett had to offer.

We felt the location between Houston and Dallas would afford many the opportunity of a more central meeting area that seemed to be lacking elsewhere. We also felt the proximity and short drive would attract people for short getaways as well as loner family vacations.

We attract motorcyclist that want to enjoy the twisty country roads with nice elevation changes as well as dirt bikers seeking of road experiences.

We attract, birders, hikers, fisherman, and all sorts of people….perhaps most importantly, we attract families. As parents of 5 children we most enjoy hearing of families “re-bonding” and leaving with big smiles and tales of monster fish being caught.

It’s these moments that make the job of providing homes for vacationing families so much fun.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a nice, clean cabin in the beautiful piney woods. We enjoyed exploring the grounds with its creek, trees and ferns, relaxing in the hammock, and eating out on the deck. We would highly recommend this quiet, getaway place.

Creekside House

  • 5 of 5
After many years of coming to TX from Illinois and spending the week in a hotel, this year we rented the Creekside house. What a great choice! The house and property were so comfortable and well appointed and the location was ideal for our needs. Can't imagine going back to a hotel. See you next year!

Creekside is located close to the Davey Crockett National Forest. Of course, it's biggest draw are the spring fed waters of Houston County Lake (not lake Houston). Trophy Bass, Crappie and catfish can be caught off the banks, or bring a boat to hit your favorite fishing hole.
